There's no right or wrong. It's a matter of taste and what look you want. I've seen it both ways. That said, you better have a good cut brush and be worthy of it to pull it off, because it will look horrible if not.

A picture would help here. My advice is not to look fore rules where there aren't any. Paint it the way you envision it. If you don't like the result, re-do it.
